and whoever has authority. with respect to cal fire, we are the third largest fire department in the nation and the largest in california with over 7,000 uniformed employees. we also have the largest aerial fire fighting nreed in the world. so typically when a large disaster type fire occurs, we are usually rendering aid, not asking for aid. so when we get into a situation when we get to that level, what we call mega fires is the new term we're using, we're reach a certain draw down level or certain criteria, we reach out to our military coordinators, hence our agreement with the third nraet and the one map locally in san francisco under ir cal fire prides itself on a statistic that we contain 97 percent of all wild fires in california with 10 acres or less and we do this with an aggressive report of incidents, even with a 911 call of smoepk with land, air and ground attack. once fires become to a large enough scale we call mue tour aid, california lass a great mue tour aid system. i think it's looked at nationally because we have souch excellent cooperation with our cooperating agencie
on the relationship that we have with cal fire. in fact, that's probably the most essential part of this thing for us to be ready to fight future fires. >> colonel. >> thank you very much for allowing us to come here and participate because it is important. we really appreciate very much this opportunity. we're doing well right now but there's khal lefrpgs we can do better on and that's exactly what we're looking forward to do. we're looking forward to build upon and leverage what we're doing here. communications, that was one of the first things. it's different with our active duty forces because you see here, we send our aircraft all around the world. we can't necessarily just invest in some components in the aircraft and call it good because those assets may be gone and deployed but we have work arounds for that. we are looking forward to that as well in addition to the training. lastly is we again kind of relish the opportunity to participate in the operations against an active enemy. at least here, it's fire. we appreciate the fact we can go ahead and enter a tactical command air control.

the qualifications are. we have master resource catalogs designed just like fire scope and cal fire in which we have built strike teams from our utilities, strike teams from water companies. they simply make a call and tell us we need 10, 12, 15, it's our obligation to put that together and get it to them. they are worried about the incident in their jurisdiction which they have to correct. it's our responsibility to reach bond those borders as their extension to bring in the reserves that they need to maintain that kaupblt newt of operation and then where we function through the state utility operations center and the state operations center to make sure that we have that kind of access and that kind of assistance. we need caltrans, we're going to need chp, we're going to need cal fire, we need dwr, they are invested in restoring their critical infrastructure and it's our responsibility to reach across those lines to get that kind of access to keep that kind of restoration underway. >> thank you. mr. brig. >> in terms of establishing standards for resill yepbs, absolutely, we have done that. ag
with 5 a on the cal endar which is a rehearing and it has been withdrawn. and the second has to do with item number nine, 13.004, i want to make sure that the parties to the matter are here, could i see the hands of the appellant and the permit holder? they have requested that this matter be continued and with the president's content we can give the parties to speak to that to see if we are going to hear that case. if we could have the parties come forward and we will start with the appellant, and three minutes, madam president? >> yes. >> you will each have three minutes to present to the board specifically on the question as to whether or not this case should be heard on a different night. >> it is the appellant's request? >> that is correct. >> i requested the alternate date because i have a second permit that i also appealed and it is for the address 2130, the second appeal has a hearing day of may 15th, it was for renovations of the interior done by the future tenant. and since this involves the same things as to whether the store, this is a retail store, i wanted to merge the
. this is a scene from the polytechnic the tick cal school where they would take the disappeared. emanuel for the americas. we are inside the basement of the polytechnic and i'm admiring the bone is thattedose that your heal bone makes in the sunlight in the palms of my hand in my mind. when you come to my bed your hands and breath is sweet and we can love like this for hours. i can find christ in your body. this too must be constructed and killed bike on television with pain and blood that's beautiful like a red refer. you made me into a woman and i surend erred into it a man-made into a woman and returned. but you don't want to my bed this is the metal cloth you are chained to in the polytechnic. and i do we do it slowly with timed extensions of christ, his face removed and his penis removed the maggets and the wounds the teeth and hair weeks before he is your christ in the black pit with you. each day becomes eternity of days the sun never sets or rises the light bulb on a wire as i burn you 117 times with my cigarettes while the other guards have gone out for a meal beef stake tomatoe
the common operating picture that we have with cal ema and we've developed the ability to import data from every allied organization whether it's usgs, the law enforcement agencies, fire, weather, what have you, to be able to put it out in layers so we literally can know everything going on. we can see lightning strikes that cause fires, down to the size of a car fire. we're often able to do predictive analysis that exceeds the ability of fire and other agencies and able to call them up because we can see this and we've trained our battle captains that work in our operations center to think ahead and think three moves ahead whether or not an event they see developing is going to cause a trigger that is going to require national guard or other military forces to deploy. >> if i may, i think it's for us, myself as the senior leader in third fleet, it's about information sharing and intelligence fusion and turning that into actionable knowledge. we have a 24/7 maritime operation center as well that we attempt to do that. we do have cnn up, usually turn the volume down and just look at the pic

back to the early days in the first 20 years when we were primarily a grantmaker making grants to low-cal practitioners and policymakers. i started this program about four years, five years ago now, i think, time flies, to really bring in members of our marshall memorial fellowship network of which david chiu is one of our alumni. some of our past grantees and also the next crop of practitioners and local civic leaders who are really looking to change their home communities by looking abroad or looking to other cities to see what other cities are doing well and how that might be imported back home or translated back home. so the comparative dom particular policy program works primarily in the 25 cities that doug mentioned, but not exclusively in those cities. we really are looking for some of the best practices in education and workforce development, in integration of diverse populations and affordability and quality of life issues in cities and regions and also -- and sustainability, in which encompasses a broad range of things. it's primarily environmental sustainability. the overarchin
to really to go at the low-cal level and convince people why it's good to have those new infrastructureses. this is one of the typical, in old belgium towns you would find it now, it's the flow of cycling. it's what you do if you have a one-way road and you make it accessible for cyclists. we knew at the federal level, at belgium level that this regulation was coming up and in parallel in the brussels parliament, we voted a law if you will implement this new belgium law of accepting cycling on those one-way streets, if you do that within two years' time, we will finance half of the cost to do so. and that was a regional law who was, in fact, encouraging putting the federal law into practice and that's how come that you will see in almost every one way street like you see there on the left that cyclists are admitted. on the right hand, you have example of lines and i have seen that already here as well. as a cyclist, i like the advanced stoplights and i make much use of it. i was already one of those cyclists who was contraflow cycling. it's a good thing and i can tell my kids that it's all
campos in cal trans and others that will come up i am sure that members of the committee might want to propose and within those departments we can probably work with you to figure out who would be the key people to talk to as well. we're 11 member body and there's probably 11 different points of view as well, so i think figuring out how to come up with the consolidated consensus as to the approach and the recruitment profile and other key qualities you want to see in the executive director. there is a lot of work to come up with that consensus and i will be as available as i can be and if you're at 24/7 i will be and other members expressed that interest so i think we have a good relationship to form to help move this along. commissioners? okay. well, thank you for being here. we can check in just after the meeting would be great. >> i would like to take a moment and ask daphne to come up and talk about her experiences. i don't want to hog the mic because it really is a team and i would like you to hear for 30 seconds. >> by all means. >> she is camera shy and microphone bashfu
the contract is for a total of 7 hundred bikes 350 will be in san francisco the rest will be down the cal train corridor so very much a pilot and used to evaluate the benefit of bike share in terms of getting more people on the bikes and out of their car giving people more options how to make short trips in the city. although the time it's taken this pilot up and going i think many other cities have already gone past proofing the concept this pilot program was initial ly meant to be 500 bikes but because of funding constraints it's only 7 hundred but we will be reaching out to our regional partners to see if we can get that number up to a thousand. and look to expand we're very confidence that as every other city that's tried this it will be very successful. the good news is the contract is finally awarded and the bikes should be in place and operational by august so a great big step forward. and then just two items on muni service changes 2 different things we're doing one temporary one permanent the temporary one is an extension of what we did during the christmas and new year holiday. we
. this is the cal train depot on a tuesday. this is tuesday. this is tuesday. castro okay lined up. different times of the day you know the times are different the days are different but the picture is still the same it's still the same. we don't need cabs all the time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> followed by ed, healey and mic -- [inaudible] and then joan wood. >> good afternoon welcome back. >> good afternoon mr. chair man members of the board i'm here to speak on a couple of items first let me follow up on something that john -- said about taxi stands. i think the sooner we get taxi stands back where they belong the better the taxi service is going to be in this city and to follow up on something that mr. -- [inaudible] said to come up with any decision they may not make any decisions regarding illegal limosines in my lifetime and i say that partly tongue and cheek because i hope i am wrong but i have never seen any action -- [inaudible] and you know the thing is i think one of the rulings that the state puc made was we're not going to fine you until we look into everything. appare
and i love basketball and in fact probably about 10 minutes ago by beloved cal bears tipped off and i wanted to say go bears and if they don't win my brackets are screwed. anyway i had the pleasure of visiting herz play ground and i always believe you should be able to run games free of violence, and i had the pleasure and phil took me out to herz play ground. they showed me where the project is going to be and i heard horrific stories of kids trying to play basketball and i think this will go a long way to improve that community's recreational opportunities and i am pleased to sponsor redoing building a safe place for kids to play hoops and i took it for granted when i was a kid and i am glad to be part of this project. i wanted to note this came before the capital committee and we approved for recommendation for approval. >> thank you commissioner. seeing no other comments do we have a motion. >> so moved. >> second. >> moved and seconded. all those in favor? >> aye. >> unanimous. thank you. >> we are now -- as a reminder item eight is off calendar so we are item nine. the so
the cal train yards at fourth and town send also known as the north end of silicon valley may under go under ground rails and mixed use towers up to 400 feet in height similar to broad gate station in london. now, here are the names of the inshat vattive tech firms recognized around the globe and head quartered in san francisco christen and brix retail and software in the cloud to digital media and online lodging governor pairy would give his it's to have any one of these to move to texas and but don't count on it behind these are other tech firms and spin offs from bred says source such as twitter and paypal, online directorsy and is on demand transportation all head quartered right here in san francisco looks like a tech bubble you might say, well no doubt there will be failures in the future but new opportunities will easily be backfilled by the dna of innovation now etched in san francisco's economy these firms and more, will provide access to a mobile mercantile network of over 5 billion consumers in a few short years and the magnitude of the upcoming change to the bay area wil
of a wonderful friend to arabs and muslims, i knew people who knew him, he was a cal grad like myself. the irony is you are killing a fripd. but that's the nature of mob violence and the ideology of hate. and unfortunately hate begets hate and that's what we're really seeing on both sides. put out an inflammatory film and people who are willing to do the dance who will confirm what the film is saying and when does this cycle end? we see this in schools as well, unfortunately. we see it on the internet way too much as you mentioned. look at any article, i am most familiar with articles about muslims but it seems like something happens to people when they go on the net, they turn into horrible people and say horrible things because nobody knows who they are. i think it obviously begins in the home, computers should be in open spaces, parents should have the ability to see what their children are doing and this goes through high school and then just the environment that we create in our schools and our communities where it's not cool to be doing these things. i think the machismo that feeds in
in 1989 when the earthquake hit and cal came in and strengthened but can't bring to standards. to fix this road will cost more than to replace. and for the last 18 years, we have been working on a design to replace the road way, but to do in a way that makes it appropriate to be in a national park and not army post. >> i would say it's one of the most ugly structure, and it's a barrier between the mar sh and presidio. and this is a place and i brought my dogs and grandchildren and had a picnic lunch and it was memorable to use them when we come here. what would it look like when the design and development is completed. and we are not sure we want an eight lane highway going through this town. and it's a beautiful area in a national seaport area on the planet. >> the road is going to be so different. it's really a park way, and it's a parkway through the national park. and they make the road disapeer to the national park. >> and the road is about 20 feet lower, normally midday, you go through it in two minutes. looking back from the golden gate bridge to presidio, you are more aware o
, eoc course at nasne, hadr course, trained with cal fire, take the time to take that training. it's tough to fit it in but it's important to fit it in and it will make us more effective. we did an exercise back in may in preparation for this and developed a pretty detailed concept of operations. we built load plan, timelines, spare parts lists, we really got into the weeds, thinking about the second and third tier effects, so i want my relief to understand that and i want him to know where that plan is so he can pull it right off the shelf if this ever happens and be ready to respond quickly instead of trying to figure this all out when we need to be getting underway. >> i'll boil mine down into just one, and that is i will pass to my relief to continue to support events like this and look for opportunities to continue to learn how we best in the military can integrate with our civilian and federal contemporaries to be prepared for an eventuality that we hope will never come, but we certainly should be prepared for. so the one thing i'm passing on is keep the momentum. >> thank
of lessons learned being applied. first to my left, ray chaney, cal fire incident battle xwrupb chief. to his left, colonel laura yeager, 40th combat aviation brigade. to her left, commander steve everett, to his left lieutenant colonel dana, marine corps installation west. thank you. let me go ahead and start off by talking a little bit and just going back over some of the discussions yesterday that i think are going to play into this discussion. we had vice admiral beeman talk a little bit yesterday about capabilities and vice admiral zunkoff talked about partnerships, unity of effort, unity of command. mayor lee talked about dod efforts, expertise, community efforts and as we go into all those discussions today you will see best practices applied during the 10 years from those fires. i have the pleasure of working for administrator fuget in fema headquarters. fema's role is to coordinate response between state and local governments and his focus, his direction to us really comes down it 3 things. he asks us to always plan for the worst case, the maximum of the maximums and it'
be able to trust where the calls are coming in. now we have impeer cal proof that we can start looking at the calls as they are coming in. in the random sample area the graffiti index averaged 8.2 compared to 8.39. again, they are fairly consist kupb stepblt from year to year. the hot spot increased in terms of its area. what we found again, 9 out of 20 neighborhoods had lowered graffiti indexes than last year, which makes sense we only had a 1.5 decrease in the amount of graffiti. it does tell us that the taggers are moving around from one neighborhood to the next, telling us how we should be managing or programs or which neighborhoods we should be looking at. this is a graphic analysis of the neighborhoods. i don't have a pointer, i'll get my head out of the way. downtown was one of our key problem areas that we started out with but we're seeing a steady decline in the downtown core. so basically we have been focusing a lot of our programming in the downtown area. we had a huge decrease in the gardineau neighborhood in the second year but something has happened in that neighbor
